Word, Rhythm and Revolution: The poets of Latin hip hop

If language is a continuous oscillation of phrases and verbal associations governed by a secret rhythm, the reproduction of that rhythm will give us power over words … The poetic creation consists, to a large extent, in this voluntary use of rhythm as an agent of seduction. Even though today they normally exist as independent artistic trends, the beginnings of poetry and those of the song probably occurred in the same birth. It is recorded in the cuneiform letter of the Sumerian empire; it is a record of one of the first songs of more than four thousand years ago, the Song of Gilgamesh, an epic poem that was sung. In its sense of transmitting, it means that through sounds in rhythm, whether words or notes, poetry and music are related and reciprocal arts.

Now, hip-hop isn’t all about rebellion. This music also voices other aspects of human life. Love, family struggle and even heartbreak.
